Eat, shop & stay

Where to eat

At Waddesdon Manor, we offer several eating places and areas, some indoors, others outdoors, depending on the season.

All the food served at Waddesdon is prepared in our kitchens. The menus change with the seasons to reflect the best ingredients available. Our dedicated chefs seek out the finest local suppliers and insist on only the freshest, best-quality produce.
